Bridge Documentation

There are a variety of interesting riveted bridges on this highway in this area, all truss bridges except for an arch bridge. Each is a good representative example of mid-20th Century provincial highway truss bridge construction. This is one of the truss bridges. It retains original standard plan ornamental railings. Aside from alteration of the sway and portal bracing to increase vertical clearance, the bridge appears largely unaltered.

Span length given are a very rough estimate.
